comment How do I view my clipboard history on OS X?
I find that any time I have the QS clipboard plugin enabled that almost every QS action becomes unbearably slow.

comment After-the-fact remote nohup with tcsh
It might be worth pointing out that sending "Ctrl-Z" to a foreground process and sending SIGSTOP to its pid are the same thing. (SIGCONT starts the process back again.) I don't know if this would be helpful for others in the same situation or not, but, in my quick testing, sending SIGSTOP followed by SIGCONT duplicates "Ctrl-Z" followed by bg.

comment Firefox quickly forget HTTP Basic Auth
This is an awesome answer. Simple, easy-to-use, no additional software required, and clever in a non-obviously obvious sort of way.
